In its simplest form:

6.3.32.  delete

  Type: quadoption
  Default: ask-yes

  Controls whether or not messages are really deleted when closing or
  synchronizing a mailbox.  If set to yes, messages marked for deleting
  will automatically be purged without prompting.  If set to no,
  messages marked for deletion will be kept in the mailbox.

Mutt can be set to ask if you want it to actually delete read messages.
I use this in its "ask-yes" state when changing folders to clean up
behind me. What you are probably looking for is "no".
